Renounce the Faustian Bargain!

I've finally got around to giving this blog a title of its own: The Faustian Bargain.

It stems from a conversation in a New Cross pub shortly after I and a few colleagues had handed in our Masters theses. 'So, what do we do now?' was the general theme. Find a job, pursue further study, move out of London and go back home were the general themes. And then, said with a smile:

'No more education. I'm renouncing the Faustian bargain and becoming a bricklayer.'

I've often admired that sentiment, even if I haven't often followed it. But anyway, this one's for you.
